ISO 14126 outlines procedures for determining the compressive properties of fibre-reinforced plastics composites in the in-plane direction. Two methods are detailed in the standard:
Both methods require different gripping fixtures. One type of gripping fixture used is the Celenese-type fixture.
This test standard is equivalent to BS EN ISO 14126:1999
Before conducting ISO 14126, it is important to read the entire specification. Standards can be obtained from appropriate standard authorities.
